Joel Weishaus was born in Brooklyn. In his late teens he was a Madison Avenue advertising executive. Soon after his 21st birthday, he quit his job and flew to Los Angeles, where he spent three months in a heat wave deciding how to proceed with his life.

After a stint in the military, he worked at many different jobs--always writing and/or and sculpting--, did year-long hermitage in the mountains of N. California, lived in Zen Centers, and moved to New Mexico, in 1977, where he first was an Adjunct Curator (Video Art) at The University of New Mexico Fine Arts Museum, then, for seven years, a Writer-In-Residence at the university's Center for Southwest Research. In June 2000, Weishaus left New Mexico for Portland, Oregon.
